1 The NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) AND STTR Program Presentation to the Stennis Business Consortium Meeting, Stennis Space Center John Lansaw/USM/MRC/ SSC Center Chief Technologist June 21,2011

2 The purpose of the SBIR/STTR Programs is to engage and provide opportunity to small businesses to participate in Federal Research activities and encourage cooperative research and development with non-profit research institutions such as a university; with a primary objective of developing and facilitating the transfer of technology from research institutions through the entrepreneurship of small business concerns that result in technology to meet NASA’s needs. Specific program purposes are to: (1)Stimulate technological innovation; (2) Use small business to meet Federal R/R&D needs; (3)Foster and encourage participation by socially and economically disadvantaged SBCs, (4)Increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal R/R&D, thereby increasing competition, productivity and economic growth, And (5)Through STTR encourage cooperative research and development with non-profit research institutions, such as a universities; with the primary objective of facilitating the transfer of technology from research institutions through the entrepreneurship of small business contracts SBIR/STTR Program Purpose

3 SBIR/STTR: 3-Phase Programs (FY10 solicitations) Phase 1 –Feasibility study –$125K Contract Award (contingent on budget and reauthorization) –6 months duration (SBIR) –12 months duration (STTR) Phase 2 –Technology Development –2-Year Contract Award –$750K (SBIR/STTR) (contingent on budget and reauthorization) –$150K Phase-2E/Phase 3 Bridge Option (New program Feature) (possible $250K – contingent on budget and reauthorization) Phase 3 –Technology Infusion/Commercialization Stage –Use of non-SBIR Funding Agreements –Ability to award sole-source contracts without further need for Justification Other than Full and Open competition (JOFOC)

4 SBIR/STTR Program Current Year Submission & Schedule 2011 Program Solicitation –Opening Date:07/11/2011 –Closing Date:09/08/2011 –Announcement: 11/23/2011

5 Program Eligibility Organized for-profit U.S. small business (500 or fewer employees) At least 51% U.S. owned and independently operated Small business located in the U.S. P.I.’s primary employment with small business during the project Proposal Review & Selection Criteria Proposal Review Factor 1: scientific/technical merit and feasibility (50%) Factor 2: experience, qualifications and facilities (25%) Factor 3: effectiveness of the proposed work plan (25%) Factor 4: commercial merit and feasibility (adjectival) Proposal Ranking and Selection NASA Project/Mission Alignment Value, Priority and Infusion Potentials Champion/Advocate SBIR/STTR Program Eligibility and Selection

6 Dryden Ames JetPropulsionLaboratory Johnson Stennis Kennedy Marshall Goddard Headquarters Langley Glenn NASA Participating Centers

7 New Elements in the NASA SBIR/STTR Program Leveraging NASA Intellectual Property within the SBIR Program –Easier for SBIR firms to build on NASA patented technology –Non-exclusive, royalty-free research license granted for period of performance of the SBIR research award –Technology Available (TAV) subtopics will be identified in the solicitation with relevant NASA patents identified –Companies can also request research license for other NASA technologies SBIR/STTR Program now under the Early-Stage Innovation Division of the Office of Chief Technologist (OCT) Cross-referencing SBIR topics to the OCT Roadmap –The OCT is developing Space Technology Roadmaps - Drafts of the Roadmaps can be found at: –Future measures are planned to associate the SBIR Subtopics with an appropriate Space Technology Roadmap to utilize the SBIR Program to advance the nation's current capabilities in space

8 SBIR/STTR Now a Early Stage Program Under OCT

9 What is a Phase III ????? –Phase III is moving the innovation from the laboratory into the marketplace either with additional development or manufacturing. –No SBIR funds support this phase. –The small business must find funding in: –The private sector (such as a large NASA Contractor), or –Other non-SBIR federal agency (NASA or other agency). Advantages of a Phase III –Provides easy access to qualified R&D companies and new technologies –Faster procurement process, either by federal agency or large company –Can award the Phase III without competing or advertising for the work –Ability to award sole-source contracts without further need for Justification Other than Full and Open competition (JOFOC) unless more than four years have passed since SBIR completion –Phase III helps meet the Small Business procurement goals Note: Small Business owns the Intellectual Property of the technology developed under SBIR/STTR SBIR/STTR Phase III Projects
